6:25 am
good fit here? he could hide under the radar with buster posey and matt cain. he will be making a lot of money and you know boston fan, if you are making $20 million a year, you have to perform. what do you think about that? >> caller: i have sever thoughts -- i have several thoughts about that. i think the $20 million mark isn't what it used to be, but there will be pressure that comes with that. if he gets off to a decent start with the bat, bell fine. the red sox struggled at the 3rd base spot with several players last year, so i think anything he gives them will be good. if he is good offensive, that would help, too, which you know he is. it could be tough around here. april is a cool month with the weather and everything else, but i think as time goes on, i like the signing at least short term and we will see what happens in year 4 and 5. but ramirez wanted to scrap him because the players now, we
6:26 am
don't know where he will fit, but i do like the sandoval signing. if it gets done today, going forward, it solidifies baseball. sandoval performs a regular season well and especially in the post season. the chiefs will love that, too. >> the giants fans are holding out hope that maybe he won't sign, but it sounds like he may. dan, thank you for the insight. >> thank you, dan. appreciate it. >> caller: sure. my pleasure. >> all right. well, looks like the panda is heading to the east coast. time for the play of the day. this may be the best catch ever in the nfl. it happened last night during the dallas cowboys game, taking on the new york giants and a rookie. a rookie made just a phenominal catch. look at this. this is o'dell beckham, jr. this guy will lay it out flat and do a one-handed, may two
6:27 am
saver catch. look at this! out and by the way, good for a touchdown, as well! incredible catch. the play of the day, maybe the play of the the year and the giants did it at the end of a 31-28 loss. and coming up, the mineta san jose international airport call into question how a man managed to take a joyride around the tarmac. ,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:34 am
little bit because that is a lot of money. their general manager was asked what will you do if panda doesn't sign, he says we still have other guys to sign. >> but when you lose that 3rd baseman, there is nobody there to replace him. >> especially in the play-offs, post season. >> yes. he is such an icon. very impressive player. that will be hard to watch him go. >> it will, but we will have to say good-bye. >> and we are missing days like this. boston weather is just a little different. >> just a little bit out there. [ laughing ] we have sunshine coming our way today and awesome weather outside, beautiful all the way to the keyesline. a little chilly this morning -- coastline, a little chilly to begin with, numbers in the 30s and 40s but by this afternoon heady sunshine and back in the 60s and low 70s for the

6:48 am
680 and highway 84 has delays just past the 84 exit. two lanes are blocked and backed up to pleasanton. and the usual commute right now is definitely looking like a solid approach. slow on the 880 approach, as well, to 92. the camera past the toll plaza showing a stack up there. and westbound 287 at the silicon valley rise, no delays. that is the kpix traffic . another check of the forecast now. the weather looking good. we need to get through a cold morning. chilly temperatures in the 30s and 40s. by the afternoon sunshine to
6:49 am
the coast. one of those gorgeous days outside. out the door we are looking at high pressure building in overhead bringing with it plenty of sunshine. temperatures on average low to mid 60s but today we will be well above the average, some places 5 to 7 degrees above the average, 68 in san jose, 68 in oakland and 66 in san francisco. we will get through the morning, though. it is a chilly start to the day, then hazy sunshine toward the afternoon. a pretty good week ahead, but then the possibility of rain and maybe a series of storms coming our way starting this next weekend. but for now high pressure continuing to build overhead. we are seeing the weak offshore wind, just enough to clear you out to the coastline. should be a nice travel day around much of the state, although a chance of a few showers in eureka, 65 and sunny around the monterey bay. warmer in fairfield, 69 in the napa valley and 65 in pacifica. over the next few days lots of sunshine and warmer
6:50 am
temperatures. maybe mid 70s by tomorrow, cooling down a little on thanksgiving. here comes the clouds and rain next weekend. back to you. >> thank you, lawrence. the big winners in the midterm elections always raises the question about term limits. >> yes. we have more. >> why are there concerns? >> that is what with will answer today. i get that question when i speak to community groups or reading the comment sections in an article about elections, we always have questions why the term elections. 95% of incumbents are re- elected, so that is typical. we have term limits for state senators and state assembly remembers, so why not the u.s. congress and senate? get ready. here is the answer. the answer is the united states supreme court has ruled that you cannot put term limits on congress or the united states senate. in 1995 a case called u.s. term
6:51 am
limits ink versus thornton ruled the term limits are not expressly in the constitution and we can't impose them. you have to be a certain age to run for congress, a certain citizen for a certain number of years and live in the state you are representing. those three requirements are it says the supreme court. they can't impose any other requirements. there you go. >> so, it would require a constitutional amendment, right? >> it would. ever couple of years somebody proses, usually a republican will prose a constitutional amendment in congress to impose term limits, but it never goes anywhere, because, you are asking career politicians to end their own careers, so the chances of term limits ever actually happening on the federal level are pretty slim. >> i would imagine so, very slim. we keep hear that congress
6:52 am
extremely unpopular. how are incumbents then getting re-elected in. >> it doesn't make a lot of sense but there are two answers. voter that is don't like congress as a whole often feel like their own representative. you see these polls saying everybody in washington, d.c. is terrible, well, that is part of it, and people vote for their own party. you vote for party a, not b. even if you are not totally in love with that capitol. you may think party a would nominate them, but it is another reason so see incumbents getting elected even though everybody hates congress, they are doing the best they can given the choices. >> yes. the president did one six year term. he spent the first year kind of getting used to it and the second year and the next two years rerunning again. >> i think president obama
6:53 am
would agree with you. he may be ready to go himself. he may get support there at the next level of the government. >> all right. thank you. >> thank you. we will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
